The next seven months of this year are set to begin on June 1, 2021. The next seven months will be crucial in the journey towards the restoration of the rights of the Eelam Tamils.
According to a resolution on Sri Lanka passed by the United Nations Human Rights Council in the first five months of this year, the Human Rights Commission has begun the process of setting up a separate office to fund the collection of evidence on Sri Lanka’s war crimes against humanity. The office is required to publish an oral report in March 2022 and a written document in March 2023 at the UN Human Rights Council session.
Based on this, the Human Rights Commission should regulate the international system and initiate a process on how Sri Lanka can be brought under control international violations that are being committed arbitrarily, without accountability, transparency, or the protection of human rights.
This can be done by setting up a private commission to investigate the crimes of those who have committed crimes against international law in the United Nations, without subjecting the state to prosecution. Or by way of regulating the International Criminal Court to hold the state accountable to the International Criminal Court for crimes against the state’s international law.
In the first place, in the absence of sufficient support from member states to regulate criminal court proceedings for the state, the aim would be to put pressure on the state to act through international law through the legal system of naming and insulting violators of international law. In the second place, where there is sufficient support from the member states of the United Nations, the General Assembly can come up with a resolution to regulate the government and pass it by a simple majority. The Security Council requested that in addition to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s ongoing inspections in Iran, that it monitor Iran’s compliance with “the steps required by the IAEA Board”. Where this is not possible, the Commission on Human Rights may request the International Criminal Court (ICC) to bring the matter before the International Criminal Court (ICC) based on a two-nation proposal by the United Nations.
These are all very delicate issues that need to be addressed through diplomatic relations with governments. This is because UN interference in the affairs of a country in violation of its sovereignty is severely restricted by United Nations creation laws. At the same time, there is the dilemma of the countries that contribute financially to the United Nations. At the same time, the world political system needs to respond to the pressures of the regional powers. This is why, even though the United Nations is aware of the facts, a viable solution is not immediately feasible. The UN Human Rights Commission can go beyond these issues and carry out its responsibilities and regularization only through the registration of the vast majority of the victims’ records and evidence of their vulnerability with the Commission on Human Rights. Victims who do not do this, blaming the United Nations and withdrawing from the world system, will in no way receive justice. This is where the next seven months will be the most important for the Eelam Tamils to win their political rights. Every harm caused and caused by Sri Lanka to the Eelam Tamils should be reported to the United Nations Human Rights Commission. Additional data and evidence should be added and further strengthen, even for those already registered. It is imperative that not only those living in the homeland but also anywhere in the world record their international crimes in Sri Lanka with these appropriate credentials. These records are also dual-use data to help the Eelamites understand the vulnerabilities of the Eelam Tamils with the testimony of the people of the world. World history has shown that the solution to the Vietnam War and the South African liberation struggle was the rise of the world’s people who knew information through records.
The first program is to develop mechanisms around the world to do these things. The second program is to develop a friendly dialogue with UN member countries to gain support for solving Tamil national problems. The Quest emphasasies that in these two programs, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights can only work towards the goal of restoring the rights of Eelam Tamils with the coordinative work of Eelam Tamils, expatriate Tamils around the world and Tamilnadu Tamils beyond their likes and dislikes.
